Cologne and Merode Castle - Christmas Markets by Coach

Cologne and Merode Castle
Christmas Markets

A diverse break including festive visits to a city, castle and pretty country town, all from your hotel in a beautiful National Park.

The first of three diverse Christmas markets is Cologne, a historic city that boasts six Christmas markets scattered across the city in many wonderful locations, especially those against the backdrop of the imposing gothic Cologne Cathedral and the Alter Markt.

Day three starts with the traditional Christmas markets of Monschau, one of Western Germany's most beautiful towns, featuring half-timbered houses and a stunning setting. Finally, we include an evening visit to Merode Castle, a romantic venue for a remarkable Christmas market. Seeing the castle lit up by thousands of candles and torches and the Christmas village clustered in the castle grounds will be an unforgettable experience.
